Notes & Reviews:

'The Diva Live' presents Wilhelmina Fernandez with pianist Bruno Fontaine in a program of American music ranging from the art songs of Samuel Barber to the popular songs of George Gershwin and Broadway songs of Richard Rodgers and Leonard Bernstein. Recorded before a concert audience, this CD, Fernandez's first new recording in some years, captures the passion and commitment of one of the world's most popular exponents of opera and song.

Since the huge success of the movie Diva, cult figure Wilhelmenia Fernandez has pursued a dazzling career. Successfully combining recitals with concerts and operas, she regularly appears in the US, South America, and Europe. At the Berlin and Hamburg Operas, she has sung Aida, Carmen, and La bohème. Accompanied by the great pianist Bruno Fontaine, the diva shines on this wonderful recording.
